Study: Microchip captures clusters of circulating tumor cells
National Institutes of Health
Researchers have developed a microfluidic chip that can capture rare clusters of circulating tumor cells, which could yield important new insights into how cancer spreads. Circulating tumor cells are cells that break away from a tumor and move through a cancer patient's bloodstream. Single CTCs are extremely rare, typically fewer than 1 in 1 billion cells. These cells can take up residence in distant organs, and researchers believe this is one mode by which cancer spreads.

Blood test could help early detection of breast cancer metastasis
Science Daily
New hope has been given for a way of detecting metastases significantly earlier than is currently possible. The discovery is based on what is known as cell-free circulating DNA — small fragments of genetic material from different cells which circulate in the blood. It is normal to have low amounts of such DNA material in the blood, but in the case of diseases such as cancer, these amounts can increase. Furthermore, in cancer patients, the circulating DNA contains the genetic mutations which are specific to the tumor.
